Shrinking the TBR Pile #5

Over time, my TBR pile has grown to epic proportions that I can just barely contain. It has many amazing books that I would love to read, but since they’re all so great, I find it so hard to decide.

Soooo.

I have decided to number each book, then put pieces of paper with numbers on them in a bag, and every Sunday, I will pull out 3 numbers and those will be the books that I read that week. Hopefully. Of course, I won’t be confined to those 3 books, I could read more, in which case I would simply pull another number from the bag, and so on.

If you are participating, you don't need to pull 3 books. You can pull as many as you want: 1 book, 4 books. However many you like.

Last week, I pulled the books Undone by Brooke Taylor, Splendor by Anna Godbersen, and Confessions of a Serial Kisser by Wendelin Van Draanen. I only finished Undone, so Splendor and Confessions go back into my TBR pile and back into the drawing.

This week, the numbers I pulled were:
3, 64, and 58.

The corresponding books are:
Darklight by Lesley Livingston

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink

What did you guys pick to read this week? Link to your post in the Linky list below!

  3. I used to do this but I've stopped, mainly due to boredom. I just pick up whatever I feel like now. :)

  6. This is an amazing idea and definitely something that I should do even if it only keeps track of what I have to read. But really, sometimes I can't decide what I want to read from what I have and this would make that all the easier.
